Sheep Attacked my sunflowers! Outdoor Wednesday

You live on a farm and you will have what I call Farm drama!
This is my sunflowers starting in my wine barrels by the front door. Well this week the sheep decided they didn't want to stay in their pen....and wanted to drop in for a visit....so of course on the 3 acres we have....our front yard was their #1 choice!
This is what the plants are supposed to look like! Well here I ran after them, in p.j.s of course since it was wee morning hours....waving a broom...the only respond to drama! I helped my wonderful hubby....who had a flake of hay in his hands walking peacefully (*&%$) toward the pen....and of course animals follow when you lure them with food....I could be lured....with chocolate and coffee!
So Welcome to Susan's Outdoor Wednesday @http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ for all the outdoor fun please visit her!

Coco our new pup loves this boogie board and loves to lay on it or next to it. Of course he wouldn't pose for my outdoor Wednesday post. Here he is posing with my hubby...

Thanks so much for the visit....I'm heading inside for some iced tea (really a nap) and some cool air. It was 103 today!

Hello. Just love this blog. My kids raised sheep for 4-H. They can be some hard headed, determined creatures when they want to be. Then other times they can be the sweetest, most docile creatures. You just never know what mood they are going to wake up in.

I can relate to your sheep. When we had our goats, they would get out and eat anything in sight, but first they would start on my rose bushes. Ate them down to the ground, thorns included. I love your puppy.

Another beautiful post Debbie! Those flowers are wonderful. We had temps at 101, so I'm with you on the iced tea and a nap :-)

OH I am so sorry about the sunflowers. I understand mine were eatin' by a horse and two little donkey's! I hope the roses stay safe they are beautiful.
Have a great Thursday,
